Hello GHYRA Sailors (And those who have not registered yet!)
Don’t miss out:
We have 9 spots left, with registration closing June 27th. Menus are available at www.ghyra.org
with meal ticket sales also closing on June 27th.
I am also excited to announce the CANWAY MFG. has joined on as title sponsor with Rosehaven staying on as a major sponsor. Both have been very generous and are allowing for an incredible GHYRA 2019.
If you cannot do GHYRA, there are 3 great events running out of both Burlington and Hamilton – Beyond The Bridge, Fiasco Regatta and the RHYC Open Regatta.
Saturday June 29th – The all new “Beyond The Bridge” regatta – http://burlbay.com/regattas.php
Sunday June 30th – Fiasco hosted jointly through FPSC and BS&BC – http://www.fiftypointsailingclub.com/regattas/fifty-point-fiasco/
Monday July 1st – Hamilton Open – https://rhyc.ca/Boating/Club_Racing_Regattas/Regattas_Registration/RHYC_Open_Regatta.aspx
Fiasco and the RHYC Open are incorporated into GHYRA, but open to independent registrations as well. Beyond The Bridge is not a part of GHYRA, but a great warm up. I am registered!!
GHYRA checkin will open @ 2pm on BS&BC Able Sail Dock on Saturday June 29th. Skipper’s Meeting for the weeks event will be at 5PM on BS&BC BBQ Dock.
Slips assignments will be included in your skippers bags. Dock masters will be on hand to help you dock on Saturday for your arrival (or Friday night if you are coming in for Beyond The Bridge). A couple important notes:
a. FPSC will require a $30.00 per boat fee for dockage. If you can pay GHYRA in cash upon check in, that would be appreciated.
b. DYC will put as many Boats into the club owned docks as possible, but Port Pier Marina is offering the same $1.00 / ft. Water levels will dictate where we end up.
c. Bronte will need to put boats over 35 feet into the outer harbour. We are currently negotiating a GHYRA price and will update as we find out final amount.
Oh what a party!! We have live entertainment at Opening Ceremonies, Fiasco, The Hamilton Open and Closing ceremonies in Bronte. DYC is planning a sing along “Dock picking party” (bring your Guitar or Ukulele) and music will be played at the FPSC party by DJ Jazzy Greg Jordan for his personal collection of favorites.. So, lots of fun for all! Wondering about PCYC? We are finalizing some idea’s…. Again, stay tuned.
Racing / Cruising:
Start times for daily events with the exception of RHYC Open and our Pursuit race will be at 10:00 a.m. The open and run to PCYC will start at 11:00. Sailing instructions will be included in your skippers bags (that also contains some other fun items!!)
More information to come, but wanted to reach out to all. SO LOOKING FORWARD TO GHYRA 2019!
